This is the delicious roll recipe Brooklynn made for Easter:
- Rhodes frozen rolls
- garlic powder
- salad supreme seasoning
- Parmesan cheese
Let rolls thaw about an hour.
Dip them in melted butter and twist them like a bow tie and line them up in a glass baking dish.
Brush them with butter, then sprinkle them with garlic powder, salad supreme seasoning, and Parmesan cheese (optional).
Let them rise for 2-3 hours and then bake for 15 minutes.

I still love the Carolyn’s Orange Rolls recipe, but if you don’t have a lot of time and want orange rolls for dinner, here is a quick and yummy recipe.
Quick and Easy Orange Rolls
12 frozen dinner rolls (I use Rhodes)
Grated rind of one orange
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C melted butter
1 C powdered sugar
1 Tbsp melted butter
2 Tbsp orange juice
1. Mix together powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp melted butter and orange juice and stir until smooth
2. Thaw dough in the refrigerator over night or 2-3 hours prior to use
3. Cover with plastic wrap while thawing
4. Grate orange rind and mix with sugar
5. Roll thawed roll in 1/2 C melted butter and then in sugar and rind mixture
6. Place on greased cookie sheet or 9 x 13 pan
7. Cover with plastic wrap and allow rolls to double in size – approximately 1 hour
8. Remove plastic wrap and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes
Let rolls cool enough that they aren’t hot (about 5 minutes) but still warm and then frost them with the citrus glaze.

Thanks to Sara for this delicious bread recipe.
Prep Time: 2 hours 15 minutes; Cook Time: 20 minutes; Total Time: 2 hours 35 minutes
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 teaspoons sugar
1 cup warm water
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing and serving
2 tablespoons dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
- Combine the yeast, sugar and ¼ cup of water in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy.
- In the same bowl, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 ½ tablespoons rosemary, fine salt, ¾ cups warm water and all the flour. Mix with large spoon until dough forms. Then work dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes. Rub olive oil on the inside of a clean bowl and put the dough in, cover with saran wrap or a cloth and let stand for 1 hour. The dough should have doubled in size by this time.
- Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Next, place the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 2 halves. Knead each piece for a minute or so, sprinkling with flour, as needed and work into a ball. Place each loaf on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand, uncovered, for about 1 hour or until dough has doubled.
- Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake the loaves for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and brush with the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle with the kosher salt and pepper and crumble the remaining rosemary over top of the loaf. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Let cool slightly and serve warm.

I LOVE these rolls. These rolls are very soft in texture and melt-in-mouth yummy. I make these the night before and let them rise in the fridge all night. They are so simple and so good.
- 3 tablespoons active dry yeast
- 2/3 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
- 1 cup butter, diced
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 cups scalded milk
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes. Combine the diced butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the hot milk, and mix to dissolve the butter. Let stand until lukewarm.
Mix the yeast, eggs, and flour into the milk mixture to form a sticky dough. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and let rise in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove dough from the refrigerator 2 to 2 1/2 hours before baking. Divide the dough into halves. Roll each half out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thick rectangle.
Mix the softened butter, one cup sugar, and orange peel in a bowl. Spread over the dough. Roll up the dough along the long edge. Cut the rolls into one inch slices with dental floss. Place in greased muffin cups. Let rise until doubled in bulk.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree F (205 degree C) oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
